So you want to Travel? Traveling the world is not a easy thing to do when you have little to no money.   Traveling the world isn't something you do with the expectation of "Just going to travel and see new things."   I've been traveling the world for over a year and a half and I must say these are the most stressful times of my life.   This is because I was taking a risk I was traveling somewhere new where life as I knew it would be completely different.   Yes I said before leaving my country "this is going to be amazing and everything will work out" I was not trying to think about the bad only focusing on the good and what I may learn from this.    Moving to Hawaii I can say is the most stressful place I've ever lived the people here believe in family and love.   Its like living is an ancient time where modern day future does not exist.   I'm still learning how to adjust and how to come to terms that this is my home for the next 8 months.   I can say I was not ready for the change I walked into not knowing how I was going to be effected personally ,but I can say I have learned so much since moving to this distant land.   I'm learning to forgive myself and everything I have done in my past I feel as if this Island is doing a deep cleansing on me and not missing any stains.   {P.S} I'm one big stain ruled by power and success so this cleansing is a thorough one ,but this trip is humbling me.   You have to keep in mind while traveling the long term goal{s} whatever that may be.    For me the long term goals are to learn healing medicine from the earth, love without worrying about what I cannot control, find peace within myself, and find Joy in the simple things.   So far I'm hitting all the goals but it not easy because at times the things I go through does not make any since I keeping thinking to myself what am I doing wrong ?   I'm doing everything right and not taking into account the fact that I'm experiencing a different culture.   The way I walk, talk, love is foreign to the people who are indigenous to this land and at times I cry because the message that Im trying to convey is mistakenly misinterpreted from from the way I meant it.   I have to understand that this trip will not go according to my plans but go according to the uninverses and that it is ok.   The lesson's I've so far learned from this will be something I will take from the rest of my life.   This island did put me through the local folk tail ,but I must've passed because I'am here and she is allowing me to stay...   This island is giving me everything I wanted but own her design and pace not mine!!!   For the first time in a long time I'm happy and at peace I'm more nervous returning home to the mainland and feeling  the since of growth and everything one staying the same.   But as I'm growing and learnt is I cannot worry about something that is not present yet ,but only worry about today.   The old saying goes "The hardest part about leaving is leaving."
